New Aquarium Talk for 2015: "Species. What's in a Name?"
Attention Aquarium Clubs!
I am interested in producing and presenting a new aquarium club talk on species and species concepts. In this talk, I will go through aquarium fish-related information covering:
- Taxonomy and binomial nomenclature; its importance and use (see this blog post).
- Introduction to species concepts
- The "Species Problem"
- Implications for the hobby
I want to offer a new, interesting, and thought provoking talk that not only informs but also gets aquarists (marine or freshwater) interested in asking questions and thinking about a concept most people don't question.
